Wonderful! Apr 8, 2008
I am a self taught illustrator and I found this book extremely useful - it really covers the fundamentals of illustration! I love it.
Fabulous intro to the world of professional illustration. Aug 29, 2007
As an aspiring illustrator, I was looking for a book that would not only tell me the different avenues I could pursue as an illustrator, but the pros and cons to each path, the best process to follow and how I could become a successful illustrator. This book really had it all! I highly recommend it to anyone getting started in illustration.
Excelent! Jun 2, 2007
this book only has one small problem: small captions. That's it! It is everything that says in the book description and more!
Essential Reading May 19, 2007
This book is absolutely wonderful. It is superbly written, beautifully designed, and contains examples covering a vast array of Illustration styles that tie in perfectly with the text.
While the focus is obviously on illustration, I would highly recommend that freelance people in the related disciplines of Web and Graphic Design read this too, since there's a lot of more general information about the challenges of going it alone. I would hope that educators are integrating books like this into their curriculum, since it's important for students to understand these challenges before being unleashed into the world!
Thanks for a great book!
Excellent resource & eye candy. Jan 28, 2007
This book is currently being used as our "unofficial textbook" in my illustration class. A very good overview of illustration careers and practices. Also, this book is great eye candy. I've been inspired to experiment a little more based on the different types of illustration in this book.
Excellent for art students and those considering careers in illustration or graphic design.
